think the fact that his new secretary of state, john kerry, is very interested in doing exactly that at least leave that possibility open, and i think what will be much more interesting is not what happens while he is there on the ground but what happens after he leaves when senator kerry goes back and in the discussions he has with israelis and palestinians over the next several weeks. then we will know more over if there is a chance for a meaningful peace process. >> looking at the entire region, what is the significance of this? >> as i said before, his primary mission is to talk directly to the israeli public and reassure them that the united states stands behind israel at this particular moment of uncertainty, and heightened anxiety by the israeli public, and the primary focus in that regard is iran, the fear of iran gaining nuclear capability, and the spillover effect of the syrian conflict, and what that might mean for israeli security as well as long-term diplomatic efforts. to the extent that he has a message on the region, it is probably less about peace with palestini

national correspondent john king is traveling with the president in amman right now and is joining us now with the latest. it sounds like the president is still a little bit hopeful at least that this can be resolved, iran's nuclear ambitions, peacefully through diplomacy and negotiation. that is the impression i'm getting though he is obviously not ruling out the military option either. >> reporter: that's the delicate challenge for the president. if you just listen to one event like that one today you might think oh, he's playing good cop. then you listen to some of his statements during the trip in israel where he promised the israeli government if necessary if diplomacy fails look me in the eye. i mean it. i will use military force to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. he also said he wouldn't stand in the way if israel wanted to defend itself. so at some points he is muscular at other points more gentle and reaching out. it is the big national holiday, the biggest holiday of the year in iran right now. when he talks about the great civilization he is trying to reach out to t

and in the region and here in the u.s. you listen to senator john mccain that the u.s. is not doing something. there was perhaps as much upset when the u.s. decided to go to war in iraq. now there's upset because of inaction, and under the bush administration there was upset because of action. so, it's a struggle to find that fine line. >> host: i think break time. >> guest: great. >> host: then there was libya. which could arguably be a success. some people say a distraction or whatnot but certainly a place where hillary clinton played a pivotal role. she travels to france, as you document in your book, and she basically wants to make sure that other people are going to contribute before -- doesn't seem like she is giving hints the obama administration is going act but she wants to make sure that other people will act with the united states if there's action. so, explain what she is doing in france. >> guest: first, let me give you the context of the trip. i it was one of the most insane trips i have been on. everything was on the move. it felt like the world was ending. you had the earthqua
the planet and the way he saw it. our own very beloved and hero with the right stuff, senator john glenn. and also senator jake garn, our wonderful colleague who retired many years ago, but was also on the v.a.-h.u.d. committee. and when i first came to the senate, it was senator garn who really along -- was really one of the members of the other side of the aisle that really helped me learn the senate and really gave me a tremendous introduction to the space program. in fact, we went in a bipartisan way to every space facility on this country -- in this country so we could learn what were the great assets we had, how we needed to fund them, and what was the future of the american space program. so we've had three senators who were certified astronauts and actually went into space. we've had other senators that have been in orbit. some maybe still are out there somewhere.

john mccain. what i learned is if you take the word campaign finances reform and string them together enough times you can take the most politically obsessed audience in the world and put them to sleep. kind of thingst the that voters wake up and think about. they think about streets and parks. a question for any panelist, how do you get people, voters, to focus on something that sounds like inside baseball, but could have a profound effect that the senator is talking about? >> one way to do is to let everything go to hell, which is happening now, and they can say how come we are not fixing this proved to provide a bookend for the focus on the campaign money that candidates have to raise, we can focus on what dan manchin, people's money, that congress is responsible for appropriating and budgeting. the government might not be responsible for everything, but they are certainly responsible for our money, and they are responsible for allocating what they collect from taxpayers. as the secretary general has said, rationing is a painful thing that puts everything out, the process can help.

: a couple tweets for you. john writes on twitter: spending is out of control. rein it in. glad bless you mr. nordquist, and amy rites: mr. norquist, by lowering rates and closing loopholes where will the revenue come from in out state is not working in europe. >> guest: if by austerity you mean constantly raising taxes to try to balance the budget, you're quite right. that's what greece and other countries have been trying to do for too long. the two -- when people say austerity they mean either the people should be made poor, because they're living high on the hog and your raise their gasoline prices and raise taxes on them, the value-added tax, the sales tax, or you can mean that the government should work to reduce its own costs, austerity for the government. we haven't been doing austerity for the government here. no european country has seen serious reforms of government spending. the one country i'd point to that has done spending restraints rather than tax increases, is canada. canada has been doing quite well. they took their corporate rate down to 17%. they're creating jobs, havin
